59-29c03. Civil rights of persons subject to the provisions of this act.
(a) The fact that a person has been detained for emergency observation and treatment under this act shall not be construed to mean that such person shall have lost any civil right such person would otherwise have as a resident or citizen, any property right or legal capacity, except as may be specified within any court order or as otherwise limited by the provisions of this act or the reasonable policies which the head of a crisis intervention center may, for good cause shown, find necessary to make for the orderly operations of that facility. No person held in custody under the provisions of this act shall be denied the right to apply for a writ of habeas corpus. No judicial action taken as part of the procedure provided in K.S.A. 2020 Supp. 59-29c08(c), and amendments thereto, shall constitute a finding by the court.
(b) There shall be no implication or presumption that a patient within the terms of this act is, for that reason alone, a person in need of a guardian or a conservator, or both, as provided in K.S.A. 59-3050 through 59-3097, and amendments thereto.
